Are you a postgraduate student in the arts and humanities? (Duh, we know you are). Are you looking for an opportunity to share your research, network with other fellow researchers, and learn about the exciting research that is taking place within the School of Advanced study and beyond? If so, you might be interested in attending FRAGMENTS, the first postgraduate conference organised by SASiety, the student-led body of the School of Advanced Study, University of London.
FRAGMENTS is a two-day online and in-person conference that will take place on 15-16 June. The conference aims to explore and show how varied fragmentation can be throughout the disciplines.
The conference will feature a morning keynote speech by Professor Clare Lees (Institute of English Studies, SAS) who will discuss “Piecework: What Does Research Tell Us About the Arts and Humanities” and an evening keynote speech by Professor Anna Snaith (King’s College London) on “Noisescapes: Interwar Writing and the Sonic Legacy of the First World War.”
There will also be panel sessions, roundtables, covering a wide range of topics and disciplines, such as literature, history, law, human rights, digital humanities, and more. You can find the full programme and the list of speakers on the FRAGMENTS website as well as on issuu. The discussions are expansive: including the impact of generative AI tools, the opportunities as well as ethical implications, transnational fragmentations, fragmented identities, and the piecing together of the textual and material past, to name a few.
FRAGMENTS is open to all postgraduate students and scholars in the arts and humanities, regardless of their institution or location. The conference is free to attend, but registration is required. You can register for 15 [virtual] and 16 [in-person] events here, and you can moreover register for the in-person evening keynote here.
